The award-winning Zen Lifestyle

With two prestigious salons located across the city centre and 18 national awards, Zen Lifestyle revealed a revitalised new look in 2016 following a £24,000 investment and celebrates 18 years in the industry. Zen Lifestyle offers a wide range of acclaimed treatments ranging from relaxing spa treatments, advanced skincare facials and medical cosmetics to their famed brow bars and waxing appointments, using the latest cosmeceutical products and peels.

As part of Zen’s ongoing commitment to offering the very best treatments, the salon group launched Exilis Facial Skin Tightening in October.

FDA approved, the award-winning Exilis Ultra 360 device delivers focused radio frequency into the deeper layers of the skin, causing the production of new collagen and elastin as well tightening the skin for a smoother more youthful appearance – all without pain or down-time. Other recent launches include acclaimed collagen drink Skinade, new cosmeceutical brand Medik8 and the latest high tech technology from micro needling – Rejuvapen.

Zen lifestyle is also home to a skin clinic offering minor cosmetic procedures including wrinkle relaxing injections and dermal fillers in partnership with famous cosmetic doctor to the stars, Dr Rita Rakus, whose team is flown up from the Knightsbridge clinic every month.
